LiquidFiles Documentation
Please Note that LiquidFiles v3.5 is currently in Beta. The following applies to beta releases:
  • To update to Beta releases, you need to enable checking for Beta releases in Admin → System → Update, and then select the beta release at the same page.
  • Beta Releases are only available to Licensed LiquidFiles systems (not trial/demo).
  • Beta Release numbers begin at .51, so v3.4.51 is the 1st beta release of v3.5, v3.4.52 will be the 2nd beta release of v3.5, and so only.
  • Expect a faster release cycle for beta releases as we're working up towards the full release.
  • We're aiming for the same high quality as with non-beta releases, and any new functions and changes can introduce unforseen problems. We will release fixes quickly when anything is discovered.

Major changes from version 3.4 to version 3.5 beta

In general, LiquidFiles v3.5 has focused on improving existing features and adding a few things that really should have been in the product a while but for various reasons haven't been added until now.

  • Support for Upload Resume. If an upload is interrupted, using an updated upload mechanism, uploads will now resume from the last completed 100MB chunk.
  • Session Timeouts — defaulting to 60 minutes.
  • Accept Cookie Alert. You can now enable to show an alert that cookies will be used when accessing LiquidFiles.
  • Rearchitected the Branding configuration making it much easier to add logos and update things like the menubar, email footers and favicons.
  • Temporary Users — replacing Access Passes from v3.4.
  • Strong Authentication Exclude Networks — if you want to enable Strong Authentication and not require it from the local corporate network.
  • Remember Strong Authentication — so that users only have to enter strong authentication every 2 weeks.
  • Require SAML — you can now require a group of users authenticating using SAML.
  • LDAP Lookup Only. Since SAML is not a direct replacement for LDAP you can now do user lookups via LDAP and not use LDAP for authentication.
  • SAML group match. If your SAML server sends the memberOf SAML attribute, you can now match groups of users using this attribute to automatically assign users to groups using SAML.
  • SAML attributes updates existing account information.
  • Sysadmins are now required to have a local fallback password. If you have sysadmins that authenticate using LDAP and the LDAP authentication fails, a sysadmin can authenticate using their local fallback password and update the LDAP settings as required.
  • When resetting a password, all other user sessions for that user id will be invalidated.
  • Updated the Admin → System → License Page, making it easier to replace license keys.
  • Added Ldap attributes for phone number and strong auth username.
  • Added SAML2 Azure configuration setting.
  • Removed the pre-shared secret SSO option.
  • Restrict Emaildrops to only use the systems Public Hostname as email recipient domain.
  • Make Reply (as opposed to Reply-All) the default Message Reply function.
  • Lots of internal fixes and improvements.
  • Updated Ruby, Nginx, PostgreSQL and other depencies and libraries to later versions.
